Staying Focused During the End of the Year
We’re all familiar with The Pareto principle—the law of the vital few—which states that, for many events, roughly 80 percent of the effects come from 20 percent of the causes. It’s crucial that you know what that 20 percent is for your organization and for your role. For yourself—and for your organization—know your goals and know where you’re heading. Stay laser focused on making those goals a reality—and on maintaining a positive attitude and confidence in your success.
